There is no NVDA f6 command.  You are using a browser command, f6 to move from pane to pane or to different structures in the program.  Just use F6.

Subject: [nvda] List of Tabs "NOT Available Here"

Hello,

I have noticed that recently when I am in Firefox and press NVDA+F6, NVDA says "not available here". I've reset Firefox and NVDA's configuration to no avail. I am running the latest Windows 10, and have not yet updated to NVDA 2019.3.

Anyone have suggestions?


NVDA froze

Cordelia Scharpf
 

Hi:

I updated to NVDA 2019.3.1 a couple of days ago and while responding to an
email in Outlook 2010, it froze and did not respond to any key strokes. I
ended up shutting down the computer and restarting it, switching to another
screen reader to write this message. I do not know if a log would help
pinpoint the problem. What other workaround might there be to restart NVDA
and get the keys moving again?

Vocalizer for NVDA

Don H
 

I am interested in only the Vocalizer voices for NVDA. A T Guys has Eloquence and Vocalizer Expressive Add-on for NVDA for $69 and
Vocalizer Expressive voices for NVDA (Latest Version) for $115.
So does this mean that the Vocalizer voices in the $69 version are out of date and not as good?

I liked that player because I could speed up and slow down the playback pause and do all sorts of media type things with the video Stream
I’ll talk to sighted people and they say that there is a way of doing that on the normal YouTube videos screen that comes up But I haven’t yet worked out how to do it with NVDA by the way I’m using Mozilla Firefox And Windows 10 with all updates applied

Dear sir,
First of all my apologies for my mistakeful English. I am using Youtube daily. So, please read the following fully.

If you feel the following is confusing, I have mentioned the very very basic style of navigation at the bottom of this reply which I was used when I was started to use YouTube with NVDA.

Open a browser and press Ctrl + L and type or copy and paste the below url.

youtube.com/feed/subscriptions

and press enter key. It will open the subscriptions page to see the videos from the channels you have subscribed.

After the page loads, press D until you hear Main Landmark Today Heading Level 2

This puts you in the main part of the webpage.

Then pressing 3 key will help you to read the title of the first video and again pressing 3 key will read the next and so on. Pressing Shift + 3 will work in vice versa (reverse).

After moving the navigation to the video you like, press space bar key or Enter key to play the video. A new page is loaded and the selected video will start to play in the next page.

The Title of the video which is currently playing will be in Heading 1 level. So, pressing 1 or Shift + 1 will tells you the current playing video's title.

To jump to the current playing video's player controls, press D or Shift +d until NVDA says Main Landmark. Then pressing the tab key will change the controls to the slider, pause, mute, next, settings, etc. Shift + tab for moving vice versa. (Or B key to navigate by buttons such as play, pause, next, mute, etc.)

You said "When watching a video in Youtube, she used to move the mouse to the videos listed on the right side of the Youtube page and click on the mouse, to go to the next or another video. NVDA would read the content of the videos...".

For that see the following:
Pressing 3 will tell the title of the suggested videos (which is on the right side) one by one. Shift + 3 for vice versa.

Pressing Enter or Space bar will play that video.

If you feel the above was confusing, simply press H key or Shift + H key to navigate by headings (video titles). D or Shift D for Landmarks, B or Shift B for buttons such as play, pause, action, like, dislike etc.

Hope I haven't confused you much and I hope it will surely help you.

If you have any other questions, feel free to reply me (your brother). Thank you sir.

With affection

Re: NVDA and Firefox

Gene
 

This sounds to me like the longstanding problem that some programs, when you uninstall them, unregister some.dll files.  NVDA has a utility to correct the problem.  Open the menu with NVDA key n.  Find and open the tools submenu.  Find and run the com registry fixing tool.  That may not be the exact name but its close enough that you will know it.  The tool reregisters the .dll files, if they have become unregistered.

Hello guys, while we are talking about this subject, I have not yet updated to 2019.3.1 just yet. But the current version I am using, when I hit F11, it says controlling remote machine, then i press F11 again, it says controling local machine. when I hear remote and local, my hering is not the best so I sometimes have to press F11 repeadly to understand it. Is there a way to change that when it say something else, like the older method when it say Remote  or Local only?

Modern doesn't mean now in that context.  it means writing with certain characteristics, thhough they may vary, but Stravinsky would be considered modern and Rite of Spring was composed early in the Twentieth Century. 
 
Modern literature would refer to a good deal of writing in the Twentieth century. 
 
In the context of computer programs, which is a different context with different usage, modern NVDA implies that older versions are far behind the times and inferior.  Not necessarily, depending on how the user uses the version or versions . 
 
I still use a quite old version of NVDA because I don't need a newer one with the programs and Windows versions I use and it does certain things more smoothly, such as how it works with my e-mail program.  I don't consider it not to be modern.  It is an old version, which has very different connotations.

Thank you. I believed the system that always told me I

The path I used to start the upgrade which is chugging
along as I write this was to go to settings and clicking "update
and security"

It wanted for several minutes to keep checking 1809 and
then, for some reason, it suddenly went to update-assistant and
did what an article I had found on line said should happen.

I also thought 1909 was the paid version. So I figured
all the updates would keep increasing the build number after 1809
which would stay the same.

As I send this message, It's on the third progress bar
which is creeping along so it looks like it will take a while to
finish as the documentation warns.

This brings me to a nvda question.

Is there a way to listen to all the messages that are
produced so that one can come back later and hear it all and
check for complaints and or progress statements?
